Bio and Links
Bio Photo It all started years ago, when my grandmother had her ancestry traced back to the poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. I thought that was pretty cool. Then a handful of old family photos surfaced, and a few colorful stories of my ancestors told to me by my mother got me hooked. All of a sudden, I have a new hobby. I am very new at this, and the information to be found is staggering. It is like a treasure hunt! I also love to visit cemeteries, and on walks I find myself wandering through, looking at the graves. I find them very poignant. As a child, my mother would take my brother and me to the Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Danville, Illinois to see the swans. I learned to drive in the Spring Hill Cemetery (I guess I couldn't do anyone harm there!) As I embark on this new adventure, I am hoping to be able to contribute information that others can use as well. Any of the photos I have contributed may be used for genealogical purposes. I would love to know when I have been of assistance, so drop me a line if you find a grave you've been looking for.

Daniel Kiedrowski (# 110844664)
Hi Patty: I hope you can undo an error that I created. I requested that you link Daniel Kiedrowski to his parents (my uncle & aunt) John & Agnes. You kindly did so. Problem is, this is a different Daniel Kiedrowski - NOT John & Agnes' son. Are you able to "undo" this Daniel Kiedrowski's link to the wrong parents?

Thanks for your help. - Tim

Minnie Stricker #111000920
Patti, I have been working on the Stricker and Kreyche names for over 20 yrs. of course Carl could be also Karl, and Stricker (I believe is more correct, than with "T", and Minnie is really Wilhelmina, her maiden name is spelled several ways Collard, Kollart, I think I have seen it was Kezo ? and her stone says she is 45 yrs not 15.
you can take or leave these bits of info, Thanks for pics of stones. MPG

Jacob Wilde -- FAG #78254692

See you added the mentioned memorial to Find A Grave. Is Jacob a blood relative of yours? If so, how? If so, do you have any additional information?

Was Edit Suggestion ever received?
Did you ever receive the message I sent via an edit suggestion, on March 22, 2016 for John Yula - Memorial# 114573092 - regarding a duplicate situation?

Last name is actually YULE, instead of YULA.

Want to KEEP your photo - could you please move it to Memorial# 64081298 - for John Kennedy Yule.

Then delete Memorial# 114573092

Catherine Louise Boerner Hilgen
Katherine Louise Boerner Hilgen #70666256 in Hilgen Cemetery seems to be complicated with Catherine Louise Boerner Hilgen #59994812 in Zur Ruhe Cemetery. Only one can be correct. Please look into this matter.

RE: Ray Stevens unmarked grave
You are welcome. Glad I could help but I am always disappointed when I have to report unmarked graces. Before I started depicting unmarked burials, I would see duplicate photo requests because there is no way to indicate the burial is unmarked on the memorial itself. So far it has worked out well.
